Karl Lagerfeld got torn a new one after he made the mistake of calling Adele “a little too fat.” And I don’t think that it’s because the world necessarily cares what Karl Lagerfeld has to say about fat people, I think it’s because people love Adele. After hearing 21, you just want to stick up for her.
But Adele really doesn’t need any sticking up for. She responded to the Chanel designer’s comments, saying: “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that."
To recap, Karl told Metro: “The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.”
This is actually probably the nicest thing Karl Lagerfeld has ever said about anyone. He’s called Russian men “ugly” and said Greeks and Italians have “disgusting habits.” It’s just kind of what he does.
Lagerfeld apologized for his comment about Adele, though.
"I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean you to you in regards to your appearance," he said. "Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."
Adele has said in the past that she tries to ignore her insecurities.
"I've seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears down on them," she told British Vogue in 2011. "And I don't want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me."
